The Met Office issued this warning today Monday 14 February.
Warning period – from just after midnight until 9 pm Friday.
Storm Eunice is likely to affect the UK on Friday bringing a period of very strong winds that could cause significant disruption.
‘Extremely strong winds may develop over southwest England early on Friday, before spreading north and east during the morning.
‘It is not yet clear where within the warning area the strongest winds will be but gusts of 60-70 mph are possible over a reasonably large area with a small chance of a brief period of gusts reaching 80 mph even inland.
‘Coastal winds are likely to be the strongest. In addition to the wind, there is the potential for a period of snow and perhaps blizzard conditions, most likely over northern England, parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and north Wales.
‘However, this is very dependant on the track of the weather system and most places will see heavy rain instead.’
